I'm not saying the JVR -- Schenn deal is a perfect comparison for a Ryan -- Coburn deal, but it's very similar; far too similar to ignore.
No it's not though, Ryan is going to cost you a good price and for a good reason. He's a proven 30+ goal scorer entering his prime in a league where scoring is down, they don't grow on trees.

The JVR/Schenn trade was two young former highly drafted players who were struggling and needed a change of scenery on teams that had a surplus at their positions.

Anaheim could get far better of a return than Coburn + Read and whatever else spare parts you want to include in there. The 11th pick would be the only really enticing thing the Flyers have if Schenn and Couturier are off the table. Anaheim doesn't really have to trade Ryan right now too so it's not like there's a real leverage on our side.

That's why I rather just pass on Ryan but Homer's an idiot will probably go down that road and come out on the bad end of it just so he could finally have a hometown kid in a Flyers uniform.
